A Scam Email with the Subject "I AM WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 12 Jul 2010 04:46:46 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was Victor Adams <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
My Name Is Mr Victor Adams I work as the auditor with Bank Of Africa Ouagadougou Burkina Faso, I have an Investor under my portfolio with a closing balance of $22.2 million his first initial deposit.
This Investor died 31 July 2000 leaving no WILL or AUTHORIZATION for re-transfer of his Investment and its proceeds to the INHERITOR and because of the laws here in Burkina Faso .
I have personally carried out an Investigation on the subject matter that takes me 9 months to finalize and was made to understand that the Family or Relatives of the Investor knows nothing about his Investment and none have any records of all his deposits and investment with us leaving an avenue for claiming of the said funds with its accrued interest on presentation of a trustworthy person that can stand as the INHERITOR to the deceased.
Like I said before, There is no risk involve as it will pass through international banking laws and all the necessary information will be given to you in later. I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a family man, I have wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting soon.
I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like me who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector.
I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny. These chances won’t pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking.
If you are interested, I can present you as the INHERITOR with all the relevant information’s and proper documentation that will qualify you to have the funds claimed and on doing this, our establishment will not question the release of the funds to you as I will make sure that we comply with the laid down rules and laws of claiming the Investment of a deceased Investor in our Establishment. Our sharing ratio will be 60:30 while 10% will be set aside for any kind of expenses along the line. Please contact me for more details breakdown if interested by sending me along with all these information’s bellow,
